    Paul knocked it out of the park last night, I was astounded that he put his voice to the test so early in the set with Maybe I'm Amazed, but he had lots of gas left for Helter Skelter in the 2nd encore. It was funny, I was seated between wy wife (64 yo) and my musical partner (44yo) in the nosebleeds, and they were both waving like fools when Macca hit the stage, "Yoo hoo, Paul! I'm up here!" Nearly 70, and he pulls ALL the trim!

    Paul McCartney live at Bell Centre, Montreal, Canada

    8.00pm, Wednesday 27 July 2011 (Yesterday)

    Sir Paul McCartney performed the second of two concerts at Montreal's Bell Centre.

    McCartney's band was Paul 'Wix' Wickens (vocals, keyboards, guitar, percussion, harmonica), Brian Ray (vocals, guitar, bass), Rusty Anderson (vocals, guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (vocals, drums).

    As is traditional, McCartney responded to a handful of the many signs held up by fans. One woman celebrating her 50th birthday asked him to sign her Sgt Pepper costume. Another sign was held by a pregnant woman and said: "Your smallest fan is in my belly. Sign it and we'll call him Paul."

    Watch a clip of McCartney performing Yesterday, followed by the on-stage autographs for the fans.



    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gcmngpXoNRo&feature

    The setlist was largely the same as the previous night's, though there were some changes. He began with Magical Mystery Tour, substituted Birthday with Got To Get You Into My Life, played Things We Said Today instead of I'm Looking Through You, and added I Saw Her Standing There to the first encore section.

    Here's the full setlist:

    * Magical Mystery Tour

    * The Long And Winding Road
    * Nineteen Hundred And Eighty-Five
    * Let 'Em In
    * Maybe I'm Amazed
    * Things We Said Today
    * I Will
    * Blackbird
    * Here Today
    * Dance Tonight
    * Mrs Vandebilt
    * Eleanor Rigby
    * Michelle
    * Something
    * Band On The Run
    * Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da
    * Back In The USSR
    * I've Got A Feeling
    * A Day In The Life/Give Peace A Chance
    * Let It Be
    * Live and Let Die
    * Hey Jude

    * Lady Madonna
    * Get Back
    * I Saw Her Standing There

    * Yesterday
    * Helter Skelter
    * Golden Slumbers
    * Carry That Weight
    * The End

    Forthcoming dates in the On The Run tour:

    July 2011

    * 31 - Wrigley Field, Chicago, IL

    August 2011

    He's just incredible. Yeah, the crowd...he started singing those old Beatle songs and the women were in tears, I mean borderline hysterical, just like the old video clips from the '60s. People just love this man and those songs dearly.

    Yes, that's the one he's been using almost exclusively for Let Me Roll It (plus Foxy Lady outro) in the last years.

    It might sound wonderful, and it might be a custom finish and all that, but I still get a sore eye watching it. That's what I'd call fugly.

    Saw him in the Louisiana Super Dome in 1993, and we were in the 4th row floor seats stage right. That was the best concert I ever attended, and my wife and I had both waited years to see him as he hadn't played here since 1963 when we were both too young to attend. It is worth anyprice to see him perform Beatles songs live!

    Rev,
    Yes, have friends on tour & many friends who go to all the shows. They share some pretty cool stuff. I'm glad to pass it along here at LPF any chance I get..Cincinatti tomorrow, & they are all in preparation mode...

    I remember meeting you on a plane to Dallas, RevWillie, to buy your Lester !!!

    I'll go to the California/Nevada/Arizona gigs if I'm lucky. My first concert was Hollywood Bowl in August 1964, was bitten by the bug even before that.

    In the skies above Wrigley Field...What is 'he' looking at?

    Here is another Gibson LP he used (pre-'fugly' guitar) for Let Me Roll It...a classic..mho !

    WHAT is there possibly to dislike about Paul ?...Rock n Roll is surviving partly because of this guy..forget about what he did in the '60's &'70's...

    I've been a fan forever. I love his solo stuff, even the more recent material. "Only Mama Knows" off the last album is an excellent song. His albums may not have all gems, but there are always several songs that, had he recorded them in the old days, would be thought of as classics today.

    How about (same LP)...That Was Me ?

    "...mersey beatin' , sweatin' cobwebs, in the cellar, under contract, acapella , at the altar, , under contract, on TV...that was me..."

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NSyWIUWNsyI

    Indeed....

    I do love >Mama Only Knows>it too rocks the record...
    Memory Almost Full & Chaos and Creation in the Backyard..Genius solo efforts. That is what he does, what not to like?

    It should've been called McCartney III & IV , iirc he played all the instruments. a little history ..kinda cool..
    .
    Memory Almost Full is an anagram of "for my soulmate LLM" (the initials of Linda Louise McCartney). When asked if this was intentional, McCartney replied; "Some things are best left a mystery". In an interview with Pitchfork Media, McCartney clarified, "I must say, someone told me [there is an anagram], and I think it's a complete mystery, because it's so complete. There does appear to be an anagram in the title. And it's a mystery. It was not intentional." The album's title was actually inspired by a message that came up on his mobile phone. He thought the phrase summed up modern life.
    His '60 solo here around ...3:30 on House of Wax...

    Man, I was blown away by his tour here in 2001-2

    One of the first songs was "Let Me Roll It". That Burst sounded amazing in Staples Center.

    I don't recall it being discussed here. Hard to miss it now and I'm too lazy to search it.

    Did not Gibson use a "different red paint" on 60' meant not to fade as much as 58's and 59's ?



    Someone was trigger happy in the booth?

    PS
    Thanks Mike ! 1982 at Gruhn's 20 years ago, time is flying by!
